The history of the Google Pixel brand

It is now June and we're waiting on the imminent release of the pixel for a introduced last year this new take on the fabulous pix formula was a low-cost look with impressive capabilities the 3a was a great value for money device that we certainly recommended people pick up

If budgets didn't allow for the more expensive devices on the market and while we wait we thought it would be great to take a step back and look at where pixel came from and how we got to where we are today

They came directly after the much-loved Nexus line seemed to be lagging behind Android fans had wanted a device that was direct from Google that would compete with Apple and Samsung for a while while the Nexus line was good the

Issues that plagued the 5x and 6p are enough to keep it from large-scale success plus the journal marketing was that as much more of a power user device not so much a phone that non-techies would enjoy and that they're made by

Google event 2016 Google announced the first premium flagship that they called pixel this was a big deal for hardcore Android fans as it showed that Google was ready to take on the big players in the mobile market and in fact in their

Launch video that made a strong dig at Apple for ditching the headphone jack this new brand essentially reused their old Chromebook pixel name but revamped it later in 2017 they would launch the pixel book which carried a lot of the

Same design language of the pixel phone line easily the biggest news around the Google pixel was how good the camera was it took the smartphone market by storm as a review after review came out praising the camera the detail

Saturation auto exposure it was all there ultimately it sent a new bar for mobile imaging as a bit of a side note since the pixel launch with some exclusive features such as the launcher and Google assistant developers and

Tinker's began to explore ways to unlock these features to any device a little while after launching the app lawn chair made his debut promising to bring a customizable pixel launcher to any Android phone

Of course the Google assistant later rolled out to all devices in 2017 the pixel 2 was launched again the pixel 2 approved to be a leader in mobile photography hosting a 98 on DxO mark the device sported some impressive oh is

Well the pixel 2 & 2 XL had rather poor displays many commented on how d saturated and distorted the OLED displays looked plus burnin plagued many users to excel screen was particularly bad with some serious off-axis blueshift

Google later released a collection of updates I would attempt to combat these issues such as a more vibrant screen mode and fading out the navigation bar when not in use but it still was an issue for many users myself included

Just before the pixels to launch a rumor surfaced that an even more powerful and premium pixel was also going to be announced at the made by Google event labelled the pixel ultra this device was supposed to be a third pixel and act as

A kind of a high-end premium edition into the lineup however this rumor was quickly discredited as a source of the leak eventually said so themselves funnily enough Google made a nod towards this

Leak in the form of an on-screen Easter Egg during a presentation in 2018 we saw the release of the pixel 3 and this round of devices a very controversial knotch made its way onto the front of the larger pixel the smaller pixel

Sported some thinner medals and no knotch however despite most competitors going for a dual camera setup in their new offerings the pixel held onto the single camera approach utilizing machine

Learning and Google's advanced image processing Google said that their single camera unit would be as good or better than the dual camera arrays of course Google would release the pixel for a year later with dual cameras in a

Surprising turn of events Google released a new model in the pixel line with a focus towards the budget-conscious audience called 3a this pixel brought a high-end pixel experience an incredible

Camera to the $400 price bracket obviously there are caveats such as a lack of IP rating no wireless charging average battery life and no large storage options but generally speaking it was a great option for the average

User finally we come to 2019 when in the Google pixel 4 and 4 Excel released one of the biggest new features here was a removal of the fingerprint sensor and the switch to face and lock additionally the display is now featured

A 90 Hertz refresh rate which was a welcome upgrade one unique feature that these pixels introduced was project soli which allowed users to utilize jedi-like stirrers for controlling basic things like playback while it's pretty fun

Ultimately it felt more like a gimmick than anything else and now we're awaiting the launch of the pixel for a which is rumored to be a headphone jack slaying beast with kovat and the human rights protests it is seemingly being
